I am at thrissur which is also known as trichur which is the neighboring district, of kochi towards north. While coming here I have had plans to photograph the museum and zoo here which I had to cancel because of some other reasons.Trichur is known for the thrissur pooram. The the key attractions of the thrissur pooram are the pancha vadyam the local music, and the decorated elephants... One hundred of them. This is a must watch event. Will post more about thrissur pooram later. I love thrissur for its clean air and water. As there are no heavy industries here the water and air is not contaminated like many other cities. In the market one can buy locally grown fresh vegetables. Trichur is known for its gold jewellery and jewellers as well. This is a laid back district. Hindus, Christians and Muslims live in harmony here. The Christian churches Lourdes pally and the puthen pally are well known and worth visiting. Trichur has the pooraparambu at its centre where the thrissur pooram is conducted. On an ordinary day pooraparambu serves as a huge park and a as a social hub of the thrissur Karan, the local citizen. The apparently and stew is a very popular breakfast item. Near the puthen pally there are a group of families who make the thin lace like appam which considered as a specify of thrissur. There is no eating place there and other events has to get it packed.
Right in front of my room here is this coconut tree which a very healthy one. To thanks to the fertile soil of thrissur.
